  1. Good Afternoon Guys, So today I have posted my latest Deck Tech on https://genericbadmtg.wordpress.com/2017/07/28/temur-energy-rise-of-the-thopters/ This is a great fun variation on the Temur Energy archetype that contains an infinite combo, generating more Thopters than you reasonably require. Check it out and let me know what you think! Yours, GenericBadMtg
  2. Hey guys, Im halfway through writing my review of this past weeks draft shenanigans and I'm finding it a lot harder and more long winded than my efforts with standard constructed. Anyone have any feedback for writing about draft and dealing with the inherent number of one ofs? Or should I embrace how much longer it naturally wants to be?
  3. I forgot to save pics of our decks, so no blog post How did you guys and gals do are your HOU pre-releases? I'm too old to do too many, so Aurian and I just went to one PR, which went 4 rounds. It kind of dragged since a lot of matches went to time, and they kept giving long breaks between rounds. I went 2-1-1 with a GB deck that had a good -1/-1 counter theme. I got Hapatra, and a lot of Amonkhet cards that syngerized. Aurian went 3-1 (second place!) with a nasty BR deck that had Hour of Devastation, Glorybringer(!), and removal to back it up. I ended up not using most of my rares, and my promo was Solemnity. Great for casual/modern, not for limited. Round 1: Went to time and a 1-1 draw. I got too cute and splashed red for some removal spells. My deck was removal-light, otherwise, but, even with some mana fixing, I was stuck with cards I couldn't play. Round 2: After dropping the first game, I decided to cut the red out entirely, and focused on a pure G/B Deck, even if I had less removal and put in some 'meh' filler. The deck was much more consistant, and I was able to take the last 2 games. Yes, having a good curve still works Round 3: Won a close match 2-1. Opponent had the new mirror that can copy creatures, so he'd copy his own Fan Bearer, tap 2 of my dudes, and then swing back copying some other nastier creature (like my 7/7 wurm). I managed to get Hapatra engine on enough to win Game 3. Round 4: This kid (who won the whole thing) beat me in the last pre-release and did so again, 2-0 He does seem to like aggressive decks and also pulls cards to support it. He had the white card that searches up planeswalkers...and Samut to go with it. Double-striking is real, especially with all of the menace dudes he has. I had him down to 2 life in Game 1, but couldn't push through. --- Overall, the sealed environment seemed quite slow, and a lot of matches went fairly long, as supposed to Amonket draft, which was very fast. Some other thoughts HOU has a lot of unexciting rares. This limited format will likely be less bomb-heavy. On the other hand, the gods and other bombs tend to be mythic. I didn't face a god all day, thankfully. I did see them at other tables, and they seemed rather unbeatable if you don't have an exile affect. I like the desert subtheme, and I had some deserts and cards that cared about them. The clone mirror is the real deal.
  4. Afternoon folks, Just wanted to let you all know that we released our first ever standard deck tech yesterday for a Red Black Burn pinger deck I've been thinking about since HOU was spoiled. The deck is a lot of fun to play and is pretty similar to some of the Thermo-Alchemist brews from about a year ago. If burn in standard is your thing, check it out here:

  6. Hey all, Thanks to everyone who reached out regarding doing some work with me, appreciate all the love. Here is my first go at doing something recorded with someone else: I would love to do more of these across a whole bunch of things, state of standard, you played in a GP, got a hot finance tip etc. I know the audio etc can be improved but I also hope that people appreciate the rawness of a couple of human beings just chatting about something they're passionate about.

  7. Hey all,. As I am sure you are all aware we have a new set coming out and I am looking for some collaboration opportunities with other YTers regarding the formats it may influence. I have someone lined up for draft but I think it is going to fall through so at the moment I am looking at standard and limited. Hit me up if you want to chat more, twitter, email (coopsboxanddice@gmail.com), whatever If you haven't seen my stuff come check me out @ https://www.youtube.com/thewholeboxanddice Cheers, Coops
